Mother Mary said at Fatima: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the sure way which will lead you to God." St. Thomas Aquinas said: "The things we love tell us who we are!" With that in mind, I will try to post each day something about Our Blessed Lady, items about the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and public domain Catholic books too! I pray you enjoy my ministry!
Below are two albums of pictures that I created:
1. Our grand daughter Adrianna.
2. Tears of Mary!

“This will be a sign for you:

The star, the angels, the shepherds; Mary and Joseph, the Magi and the
oxen—so many ways to point to the mystery of Christmas. And always at
the center must be the child, the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.
Blessed Cardinal Newman put it well in a Christmas sermon. Christmas reveals God to be Emmanuel, with us as “omnipotence in bonds.”
God who is mighty, all-powerful and eternal takes on the limitations of
human flesh. In Jesus Christ, God combines the two extremes of
greatness and smallness. Is this not in a small way echoed in the work
of the Catholic Medical Mission Board? With the help of large
organizations and corporations, with a multi-million-dollar budget, our
goal and focus is to bring care and healing power to mothers and
children around the world—ultimately to the new-born baby in Haiti and
Kenya and Peru.
In different ways, we try to imitate and share this boundless love of
God, which is focused on the infant Jesus. A Blessed Christmas to All!
Rejoice, you who are just. It is the birthday of Him who justifies. Rejoice, you who are weak and sick. It is the birthday of Him who heals. Rejoice, you who are in darkness. It is the birthday of the Redeemer. Rejoice, you who are free. It is the birthday of Him who makes free. Rejoice you Christians all. It is Christ’s birthday.
